Regard must be had to the higher standard of conduct expected from public officials, and the number of falsehoods that have been put forward by the Public Protector in the course of the litigation. This conduct included the numerous “misstatements”, like misrepresenting, under oath, her reliance on evidence of economic experts in drawing up the report, failing to provide a complete record, ordered and indexed, so that the contents thereof could be determined, failing to disclose material meetings and then obfuscating the reasons for them and the reasons why they had not been previously disclosed, and generally failing to provide the court with a frank and candid account of her conduct in preparing the report. The punitive aspect of the costs order therefore stands.
If you are an experienced, qualified and highly motivated person, then we invite you to apply for this three-year contract position as Director of the Centre for Comparative Law in Africa (CCLA). As the successful candidate, you will be required to set up and manage the Centre and, importantly, to seek funding to ensure the Centre’s sustainability.
